Aim for the 4-Hour Workday Instead of 4-Hour Workweek

Aim for the 4-Hour Workday Instead of 4-Hour Workweek

The goal is not to work 4 hours less but to:

Become Mindful- Notice how you are currently spending your time at work, especially the time wasted doing useless tasks

Deep Work over Shallow Work- Shallow work is busy and unfocused. Deep work, made popular by Cal Newport in a book of the same title, is about working with our attention focused on one thing.

4-Hour Workday is Deep Work and Flow State Combined

Deep Work in a Flow State- A flow state is where we are so wrapped up in the single task at hand and time passes without us noticing because we are accomplishing meaningful work. 

A 4-hour workday is possible because we are doing deep work while in a flow state

One hour in the flow state is probably equal to 100 or even 1000 hours of normal state both in terms of output & in terms of joy.

  • Not everyone's work is well suited to a 4-hour work day

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.

This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!

Shankul Varada

Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.

Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.

Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.

Laetitia Berton

I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!

Jamyson Haug

Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
